    Now that I know who he was, I have to agree with SalemWithchChild...I saw his show a couple of times, years ago, and it seemed inevitable that he would die on the job.

    I do not think that he "deserved it". He was an educator for kids about animal habitat, and he was anti-whaling and sealing. He was an advocate for all animals, and I respect that. We have lost a positive influence.

    As for the class members who laughed when their teacher made the announcement:...don't know what to think...if our young people are so desensitized to loss of a life, we have trouble ahead.

    Its a sad loss for all of those of us who are fighting to educate people on the need for people to realise its not the animals its the humans who make the mistakes. He will be sorely missed and I can only hope they finish his final show that he was taping as a tribute to all the good work he has done over these last few years.
    The reason dogs are great is they wag their tails, not their tongues.

    Actually I hope his wife takes over and continue's the show. But maybe it would be best since she has two small ones to not continue.. I can see personal reasons why not.. but it would be great if she could still continue the message her husband worked so hard to send..but still safer... :)
    Blessed Be

    She was a wild life conservationist in the USA, alot of work with big cats, not so much with crocs, I'm sure she will do all she can to keep his dream alive.

    I read that Steve Irwin got his knowledge and training from his dad. Hopefully his son will continue the family tradition and passionate animal-loving.

    The breakthrough with my foster boy and our relationship was watching Steve Irwin on TV. We loved him and mourned together.

    An interesting day at the Rainbow Bridge.

    Rainbow Bridge is a place of both peace and anticipation as departed
    pets await their beloved owners. There are plenty of things to keep
    them contented while they wait: trees you can't get stuck in, endless
    meadows, splashing streams, thickets perfect to hide in for
    pounce-attack games.

    But one day the residents noticed some rather...unusual newcomers arrive.

    The koalas and the kangaroos slipped in rather quietly, but then came
    the bearded dragons, the skinks and the goannas. The influx of snakes
    startled an entire family of cats up a tree. Pythons, cobras, tiger
    snakes, brown snakes and even fierce snakes. There were so many at one
    point, it seemed the ground itself was alive with writhing. A burly
    wombat shouldered his way through the crowd and plopped down in a
    shady spot, barely missing a Jack Russell terrier who yapped
    indignantly as he abandoned his position.

    And then the crocodiles showed up.

    Finally, a Great Dane managed to get up enough nerve to approach one
    of the reptillian giants.

    "Um....excuse me," he said hesitantly. "But why are you all here?"

    The croc dropped her jaw and laughed. "Same as you, mate," she said.
    "Waitin' for someone who loved us."

    The dogs, cats, gerbils and other "typical pets" looked at each other
    in confusion, then at the plethora of weird, ugly and downright deadly
    creatures assembled. Who on Earth could possibly love some of those
    faces?

    "I see him!" shouted a green mamba from his vantage point in one of
    the trees. A cacophony of squeeks, hisses, bellows and roars erupted
    as the mob surged forward toward a lone human walking across the field
    toward the bridge. The other animals managed to catch a glimpse of him
    before he was overwhelmed by the crowd.

    "CRIKEY!" he shouted joyously right before he was bowled over by the
    wombat.

    "Well I'll be," said a Persian as she tidied up her fur. "It's that
    Aussie my human liked to watch on TV. Had to be the craziest human on
    the whole planet."

    "Oh, please," remarked a echidna as he hurried by. "Is it really that
    crazy to passionately love something God made?"

    No, it's not really that crazy.

    Animals always become best friends.
